Deleting a user - docs say content assigned to 'anonymous' AND 'deleted member'(?)

Trying to decide whether to delete or deactivate a user account. Reading the info here:

I’m a bit confused by these 2 sections, which appear contradictory (but maybe that’s just how I’m interpreting them):

So would the content they produced be assigned to ‘anonymous’ or ‘Deleted member’? (The latter I understand can be renamed)

Hi! You’re right - it is a bit confusing! The answer here is both - the “deleted member” is the anonymous name assigned to the items that used to belong to the person. So instead of “anonymous” the items will say “deleted member”.

I hope this helps clarify but please let me know if not! :sweat_smile:
